I don't like High, I worked oil rig derricks when I was younger and was skeered everyday, most derricks I worked on were around 60 feet thats way to high:P

I rode a few wall-climbers in my day, one on a 140 ft. radio tower...30 mph straight winds left me with one arm to work with (wall-climbers aren't attached to anything but a quarter-inch steel cable)...I don't mind heights, but unstable footing, whether it's a foot or a hundred feet up, renders me helpless...Ask me some day about the 32' swayback extension ladder I used to own...

I add $500 to any exterior estimate where i think I may need to take the 40' ladder off my van.  Any inside that requires an extension ladder gets the same treatment. Ramblers rule! ;D
